A quick guide to common terms

Manufactured home: Refers to a home built entirely in a factory and covers single or multi-section homes, including transportation to and from your site as well as installation. Must meet the following federal regulations:

  • Design and construction
  • Strength and durability
  • Transportability
  • Fire resistance
  • Energy efficiency
  • Quality

Modular home: A home built to state, local or regional codes where the home will be located. Includes system-built homes transported and installed on-site.

Mobile home: Even though the term is still common today, new mobile homes are actually called new manufactured homes. The industry stopped using the term mobile home in 1976, when federal codes from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) took effect.

Our new manufactured homes and modern modular homes are as stylish as they are efficient.


Quality, strength, comfort and value.

Our new modular homes and new manufactured homes are the cutting edge in housing; they’re modern and contemporary. We build new manufactured homes (formerly known as new mobile homes) and new modular homes in every style imaginable – ranch, Cape Cod, Southwest or postmodern – and most can be customized to match your unique tastes and needs, with amenities such as stainless steel appliances, stone fireplaces and whirlpool baths.

Here are some of our latest home designs – from green manufactured homes to contemporary modular homes.

New Modular Homes

Modern modular homes

Modular homes are just like stick-built homes, meeting all the same local code requirements. But unlike stick-built homes, modular homes are precision built indoors, where they are protected against adverse weather, which results in a higher-quality home. Modular building allows you to choose from hundreds of floor plans and customize your home with thousands of options. Whatever options you settle on – from luxurious carpet and a custom kitchen to a stone fireplace and spa bathroom – your new modular home will be a reflection of you.
